16th Century Coaching Inn.
My visit to this hotel was around 2002, when I attended a conference here and stayed overnight.
The hotel staff were friendly and efficient.
My room was very comfortable, although there was a strong smell of paint, as there was some re-decorating in progress.
To be continued .......... My room had views over the 'Award winning ' Gardens.
Popular venue for Wedding Receptions etc.
Wansford - In - England?
Wansford is a pretty village, with unspoilt yellow stone houses. The River Nene flows through the village and is spanned by an elegant old stone bridge. The Nene Valley Railway headquarters are located here.
The Centre of the village is probably The Haycock Hotel, (left forground of the photo.) originally a 16th century coaching Inn, but now a popular venue for wedding parties, conferences, wining and dining etc.

My first visit to this sleepy village was to attend a conference at The Haycock Hotel.Although I only stayed over night, and didn't get to see too much of the village, I was quite impressed though, and put it on my list of places to re visit one day.
In 2003, while on holiday in Kerala, I met a couple of friends who were travelling on the same tour. One of our first conversations revealed that they had both lived in this village, one having had her wedding reception at the Haycock Hotel! We've since kept in touch, and we meet up on various occasions.
So, meeting up in November , staying in nearby Stamford, it was decided to have a drive out to Wansford.
It was quite interesting to see the village through their eyes, as they remembered the buildings from their childhood and later years.
